Law Guide: Secondary Resources

Find targeted resources for legal research
Secondary sources such as commentaries, dictionaries & encyclopedias, books, and journal articles are an important step when conducting legal research. We recommend these resources as a starting point to your research. Secondary sources will provide information about key areas of law and will point you to primary law such as cases and legislation.
